Hello Again!

So it's been awhile since I've posted. Actually, it's been almost six months...
But I'm back!
To celebrate my return, I'd like to thank one of the lovely ladies that pushed me to blog again. She's a fantastic artist, you can check out some of her charcoal works here! Or, if blogging isn't your style, (which would be weird since you're reading this on a blog...) you can like her page "Handmade Photobooth" on facebook. Definitely worth your time.
These past six-ish months have been kind of crazy. And kind of ridiculous and really stupid and somewhat of a down-er. Therefore, I will not waste your time or your good mood by talking about them. Instead, I should talk about the future.
I get to be in an opera this summer! We start rehearsals in just under a month, and along with being in the opera, we get to have a bunch of teachers come in and workshop with us to improve our techniques. This is going to be such a great opportunity for me, and I hope that my voice really gets to come out and grow this summer.
My Junior Recital is in November! Sooooo crazy! I have most of my music memorized, with the exception of a couple of pieces that are super close to being ready. My mind might just explode with too much musical-intake for the next couple of months. I can't wait though, this is a huge mile-marker for me.
Speaking of mile-markers, I should probably start to run or do some exercise or something. Eh, I'll think about it ;)

February is Here!

Oh. My. Goodness. It's February. Instead of a New Year's Resolution, I'm going to incite a better tradition - A New Month's Resolution. What is my resolution for this month? Update my blog at least once in February. Hey look, I've already accomplished my goal!
In honor of this new month upcoming, I feel inclined to remind you that Valentine's Day is in 13 days. That means that I only have 13 more days to mentally brace myself for whatever might come this year. Some of you might be thinking "What's the big deal? Valentine's Day comes around every year." But this year is different kids. This year Brandy is finally dating someone when it rolls around! We thought it might never happen!
So here are the dilemmas: Do I get him something? Will he get me something? Are we finally going to kiss? Do I need to plan out a special day? Am I thinking through this too much, and/or am I being too pushy and clingy? I have no answer for any of these questions. I asked him if we were going to get each other gifts, and his response was "I'll never ask you to get me anything, but if you do, I can't really stop you." So I then asked, "Well, do you think that you'd be getting me something?" And if I could remember his response I would tell you all, but it honestly has slipped through my short-term memory's little grasp. So I'm at a stand-still. Even worse, if I did decide to get him something, what on earth would it be?!
I don't really want to worry about this right now. I just want to enjoy his company and pretend like Valentine's Day isn't even coming this year. Instead of Groundhog day for-telling when the next season will arrive, I think it should be changed to decide whether or not Valentine's Day is held that year. If the groundhog comes out and sees his shadow, the sun is out enough for people to be basking in the light and forget about all of the follies of Valentine's Day. But, on the other hand, if the groundhog sees no shadow, let the lovey-dovey begin! Hopefully then there would be less years in which I would have to worry about silly things such as these.
Happy February everyone! 13 More days of unresolved questioning :)
